Joshua Kryah's Glean
Joshua Kryah's first book has just been published by Nightboat Books. Here's a sample from the book. This PDF link doesn't work on my computer, but it might work on your computer. If it doesn't, then click here to read some online poems.
I met Joshua at Iowa. Nice guy. Black glasses. He rented a house outside of Iowa City. I think he was renting Jane Mead's house. I remember attending a little get together he once threw. I remember Joshua and a female friend (Amber?) performed for our pleasure. They mangled and sang the Eurythmics' "Love is a Stranger." Oh boy. They inserted a different word into the lyrics. Gimlet? Gimplet? It was strange but lovely.
